The company is working on hardware modules that can be attached or detached to change the feature set. One module will add automatic avoidance technology through a tiny laser scanning device called a LIDAR sensor.

Snap costs $995 during the preorder stage and will ship sometime in 2016. The price will later increase to $1,295, Fisher said.
